Sadio Mane - Bayern Deal Complete


Recommended Posts

I wonder whether he'd have said that if we won last night but one cant tell. I wish him the best wherever he goes. He came in and hit the ground running, showed up when he was needed the most (against Bayern always comes to mind for me) and worked well with anyone that was put up with him up front.

Shame he’s feeling that way, but he gave us so much so he’ll go down as one of our best. 
 

We should be going in for Nkunku. 

Do you even need another attacker? 

You have Diaz to replace Mane and Carvalho to replace Diaz' rotation role.

If true, he will be a big loss given what he contributes to the team but it was ineviable that either him or Salah would move on eventually.

Salah 29, Mane 30. Both wanting new increased deals with 'x amount of years'. Liverpool will also have one eye on the evolution of the side. Sometimes its hard to justify handing out two big deals to players of that age no matter how badly you want to keep them. And if they aren't prepared to meet in the middle, you're fucked really.

Taking everything into consideration, the club were obviously not prepared to budge from what they could offer and on the face of it, arguably decided to chuck all their eggs in Salah's basket.

Definitely. Jota is great, but he isn’t Mane’s level. Carvalho May end up being brilliant, but he’s young and relying on him to take the rotation role is a risk. Took us everything from everybody to compete in all fronts, can’t be actively weakening our position.

Jota’s good but he’s not even close to as good as Mane out wide or in the centre.

I think if we sell Mane the logical thing to do is go out and buy another really really good attacker.

No offense to Fulham or the championship or Carvalho himself but if he’s gonna be a main backup for our front 3 I think we’re probably in trouble because he’s a fucking kid who bossed a second tier league. And stepping up to a side trying to regularly win the big trophies is a massive step up.

I kind of thought it was going to happen,  a season like this was going to end up with them leaving whether they won the league and champions league or not.   I can see liverpool going for Nunez and like pointed above they have Carvalho and Diaz in so it isn't like they are short of options.

Losing Origi and possibly Minamino, if rumours are to believed, we'll definitely need another, even if it's for the domestic cups. Carvalho more likely to replace Minamino's role I think

They'll deservedly and rightly get more than £30m. Liverpool can comfortably command that. 

Do Liverpool even need a replacement? They've got Carvalho, Salah, Diaz, Firmino, Jota to occupy those front positions. Even Harvey Elliott could play there if really necessary...?

I'd say so. Can't expect that Carvalho to necessarily fill massive shoes straight away, Firmino isn't the player he was. Diaz and Jota will continue to improve but I'd have thought they need another attacker.

I hope he stays one more year. 

I can't begrudge him a new playing experience though if he does decide to leave. Playing careers are short, and the chance to try a few different experiences is understandable

I wonder if Liverpool would eye up Dembele on a free now he's left Barcelona.

Ability isn’t in question, attitude is though. He would have to belt up pretty swiftly if he wants to work under Klopp. We wouldn’t put up with the behavioural issues.

When the rumour came out what a week or so ago there where no German sources that had any info on it so I just kind of brushed it off but the longer this went on the more that was coming out. I do hope it comes to fruition and would make sense for us. Theres been stalls in the Gnabry extension and the rumoured offered wage imo isnt worth paying him and he still hasnt accepted that offer. Mane would be a clear upgrade and we should be able to recoup most of the transfer fee by selling Gnabry so im all for it.

Hes an enigma man. Started the season slow after a month or so he settled in and was in his best form for a good half the season but after that fell back into the abyss. Finished the season on the bench for the last chunk of matches and was just never good enough. Idk what the deal is he has all the talent in the world but just cannot put it together for even an entire season. Very much like Gnabry in that regard.
